Brezhnev declared today the United States Is the main cause of war in the world and pledged that the Soviet Union will build up its armed forces, He lashed out at the "crimi» nal, dirty war in Vietnam," Brezhnev spoke at a special Kremlin meeting celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Soviet armed forces. It was at* tended by other Soviet leaders, Including Premier Alexel N. Ko- sygin and President Nikolai V. Podgorriy and defense ministers of various Communist countries. Brezhnev accused the United States of "creating centers of tension in different regions of the World" and called it "the main force of war." Ho told an audience of G,000 in the Kremlin Palace of Congresses that In View of this the government "considers it its sacred duty to strengthen the defense capacity of the Soviet Union in all possible ways." Brezhnev cited no figures but he asserted the Soviet army has "the most modern rockets and nuclear weapons." Brezhnev, reading congratulations from the Communist party and government to the armed forces, made no mention of efforts to bring peace to Vietnam. He \ also avoided going into other current causes of international tension. The Soviet leader made his speech after flying back today from a meeting of East bloc leaders in Prague, where increased unity was urged for the Communist movement. ,The Soviet government celebrates the anniversary of its armed forces on Feb. 23 to mark the battle at Pskov outside Leningrad in 1918.

(AP) Florida's statewide walkout by teachers ended its first week today with one third of the state's schools still closed. However, Gov. Claude Kirk told a rally in Jacksonville Thursday night, "at the moment we're winning ... I have to report most of the teachers are going back." Florida Education Association leaders labeled the reports that teachers were trickling back to their desks as "deliberate rumors to try and break the teachers and frighten them back." The FEA officials said, the 24,000 teachers reported now idle would stay off the job and that their actions were gaining support.

The council's Public Works Committee came out favoring union demands Thursday after a sit-in by striking sanitation workers. ; In a late night news conference, union leader William Lucy said if the council okays the committee report, he will recommend to 1,300 men off the job that they return to duty.

Patterson, speaking for the group, said, "We call upon all of the several days. *' ;. Wheeler told newsmen In Saigon his,, purpose in making the trip was to get first-hand information on the war's course—information that presumably would include, future troop requirements. President Johnson has said the United States will up Its troop celling—now set for 525,000 by July 1-lf a larger force is needed. A number of high-ranking members of congressional committees dealing with military affairs have recently bemoaned what they say is a reduction to dangerously low levels of forces based in the United States. Such forces, ostensibly for use in emergencies that might arise around the world, were further reduced by last week's presidential order sending 10,500 Army paratroopers and Marines to Vietnam on a speeded-up deployment basis to meet a Westmoreland request. • In another VJetnam-related g people of the community of . . in. i r, ,. ..

MfLtS (from page 6fl§) filling the payments balance, Mills hds poinfdly told the id* mlnlsttatiott to hufry up. The tftteslioh now worrying *lrfiinlstfttfoft strategists Is whether Mills will Insist on stronger measures than the U.S. trade negotiators would recommend as part of the package with some torto of travel tax. the General Agreement on tariffs and trade, to which this Country and Us principal trading partners give allegiance, sanctions a few kinds of protec* lion devices while banning most. But If the United States tried to institute border taxes on imports, for Instance, it would likely provoke cofnplaints to GAtt, which distinguishes among the kinds of taxes to be equalized, the U.S. system, under'Which an'important part of the total tax levy Is Imposed by states and local subdivisions, is not exactly paralleled elsewhere. In any case, much the clamor In Congress is for conceivably more drastic measures, such as quotas, Mills himself has introduced a textile quota bill, one of many such measures in behalf of a multitude of industries. Mills has not pushed his quota bill, but It does nothing to diminish his bargaining power with the administration.
